Snap shot ...

Katie spent a few days away with friends in Wales.  It seemed very strange not having her around, especially at the yard, but she had a great time and I have a sneaky feeling she could have stayed longer!

Close Act in Peterborough
Unfortunately, Katie missed the Olympic torch coming to our area, but the rest of us decided to drive to Peterborough to witness the festivities laid on for the event.  It was a spur-of-the-moment thing and we weren't disappointed.  The Dutch company "Close Act" put on an amazing performance with their huge puppets and stilt walking entertainers.  The costumes were amazing, the puppets breathtaking, and it was great that they were able to walk among the crowds as they acted out their play, getting so close you could really feel part of it all.  The weather, although not fabulous, didn't spoil the event and the atmosphere was so good we wouldn't have noticed a mega soaking, even if it had happened.

Ben cooked an Italian meal for us on Sunday which was scrumptous.  The home made pizza was delicious and so quick to make and the vanilla ice cream to die for.  Alongside the pizza he made a side dish of tomatoes and butter beans, and garlic bread too (the only item he didn't make from scratch).  Nom!
